Tools have been stolen from a van in Imperial Avenue, Mayland.

The equipment was taken from the secure Renault Master van overnight last Thursday with the stolen items including a Bosch planer, a pressure washer, a Dewalt battery drill, Dewalt jigsaw and Dewalt hammer drill.

The exact value of the stolen tools is yet to be confirmed but is expected to be several hundred pounds.

Anyone with information should call Essex Police on 101.
